Role of RNAi in Crop Improvement
( 1949 reads)
RNA interference (RNAi) is involved in sequence-specific gene regulation driven by the introduction of dsRNA resulting inhibition of translation or transcriptional repression. Impact of RNAi to improve the crop plants has proved to be a novel approach in combating the biotic and abiotic stresses and the nutritional improvement including reduced content of food allergens and toxic compounds. It has been employed successfully to bring about modifications of several desired traits in different plants.
